About Activity Works
The Activity Works program features multisensory classroom movement breaks that enhance learning, evoke joy, and instill healthy habits.
The engaging content in each episode supports and goes beyond core curriculum by infusing elements of music, dance, art, and diverse cultures into the immersive exercise experience.
Each episode is carefully researched and developed by professional educators, musicians, storytellers, and dance specialists.
The Activity Works experience increases motivation to learn and helps build community. Alongside its accompanying nutrition program, All Star Health Squad, and the classroom rewards model, Activity Works has the power to transform the culture of health in any school.
“Activity Works helps change the culture of the school because it shows kids that we care as much about their health and wellness as we do about their academic performance and their success in life.”
– Bettyann Creighton
Director of Health, Safety and Physical Education, School District of Philadelphia
